's baby and the fiscal cliff countdown thing, it's about to get serious. >>> i'm steve kornacki. fiscal cliff tops the list of banished words. sloped does not agree on the list. i fully agree. >> >>> i'm crystal ball. never again after today. who am i kidding? cliff, cliff, cliff! i can't stop myself. >>> the latest on kim kardashian, kanye and the baby ahead but the other story in the headlines today. america staring down the fiscal cliff. t-minus nine hours and counting and washington is wasting no time. senate minority leader mcconnell saying both sides are close to a deal. it's about time. >> my preference would have been to solve all these problems in the context of a larger agreement, a bigger deal, a grand bargain. whatever you want to call it. that solves our deficit problems in a balanced and responsible way. with this congress, that was obviously a little bit too much to hope for at this time. it may be we can do it in stages. >> there are a number of issues on which the two sides are still apart but negotiations are continuing as i speak. but we really are running out of time
about israel and how many times they moved the red line. >> steve, the interesting thing about this syrian situation is there could be other kcountries that decide to act militarily or there could be a coalition that does this. it won't have to be the united states alone. yesterday we had goldberg on, your colleague at the atlantic, who reported israel is preparing, turkey is preparing. i also assume at this point the tax cutter, uae, the gulf states would participate in something like this as well. what do you know and what are you hearing? >> well, i think that's right and i think the right model to think about is libya and what you have in libya and what you may have in syria is essentially an atrocity driven strategy. in other words you get right to the edge of, you know, a benghazi wipeout or a potential real use of chemical weapons and then that drives the coalition response. i think it's highly doubtful that the qatar would take action but highly probable a calculation that involves turkey and thus nato forces were to take action if chemical weapons were to be used and i
adviser steve ratner and minnesota democratic congressman keith ellison with near glee. there is no real choice about that. we're clear social security is off the table. this is, to me, the much more interesting debate between tom and dan. >> you want republicans arguing. both sides are also battling for control of the debt ceiling which may represent the republicans' greatest point of leverage in these budget talks. goo the speaker of the house says that's a nonstarter. >> silliness. congress will never give up the power. i've made it clear to the president. we need cuts in reform greater than the increase in the debt limit. >> bottom line, you've got to put a detailed plan on the table that the white house ends up agreeing to some of it, rejects some of it in the same way the white house is arguably overplaying their hand on taxes. the question is whether you're going to see two full fledged plans be put on the table. republicans for now, including speaker boehner and mitch mcconnell both say, hey, all these plans are familiar to the white house. we shouldn't have to put them on the ta
with steve rattner? >> i learned richard haass thinks north korea is the thing we should be lying about thinking about. >> wants us talking about it three hours a day. >> three hours a day. man's on a mission. what did you learn? >> i learned there's yet another reason not to drink soda. >> what is that? >> like i need one. it has some strange flame retardant in it. >> i thought that was gatorade. >> orange soda, snaple drinks. >> what time is it? >> it's "morning joe." chuck todd is straight ahead. >> the people have spoken and they want a deal. brand new poll numbers show us the country is craving a compromise. and guess whose personal ratings are topping the charts? not the president. 2016 sure looks good for the clintons, even though hillary clinton assures us she's not thi running, right now. good morning from washington. it's thursday, december 13, 2012. this is "the daily rundown," i'm chuck todd. the only reason we can't saturday fiscal cliff negotiations have fallen apart is that the two sides are still talking. but things are bad, make no mistake. and neither side is optimisti
with the white house. that obviously did not work. retiring ohio congressman steve latourest said conservative members simply wouldn't bend. were there any pleas by other members to encourage them to go along with this vote? >> no. i mean, we've been doing that for two years with these people. and all they -- they become martyrs. you know, they become martyrs in the eyes of these extreme groups in our conference. yeah. there are people who respond when club for growth, heritage action, freedom march starts pounding them with robocalls, sure. >> are you disappointed? >> disappointed. it's unbelievable. this is horrible. >> kansas conservative congressman tim hoel's camp was among those that opposed the bill. afterwards he seemed almost giddy about boehner's defeat saying, and i quote, republicans should not be forced to vote for a show bill that asks us to compromise on our principle. he then made it clear, politics weren't the only thing in play, at least for him, adding, on a separate note, republican leadership thought they could silence conservatives when they kicked us off of our committee
